To: Fall, From: Me
Thank you for promptly arriving yesterday night at 11:09pm. Thank you that even though you really don't show up until late December around here, it was a very cool and comfortable 67 degrees yesterday (of course it's actually God to which I attribute these pleasantries...you're simply my friend). I decorated you (decorated for you? hmm...) yesterday and gleaned an incredible amount of joy from pulling out the old wooden pumpkins, dried corn cobs, cornucopias, leaves... And then that happily familiar scent of a pumpkin candle burning in the kitchen was fabulous!
Thank you for inspiring a comforting shepherd's pie for our fall initiation dinner last night.
You just rock. See you again in December!
Cordially and Autumnly,
